Chateau Elan Winery and Resort on AAA's list of 4-Diamond Restaurants & Hotels

By Ken Stanford Reporter
TAMPA, Fla. - The AAA Auto Club Group has announced the 34 hotels and 12 restaurants in Georgia that earned the Four- or Five-Diamond Rating during the past 12 months.

Chateau Elan Winery and Resort in Braselton is among them - making the Four-Diamond list.

The AAA/CAA Four- and Five-Diamond Ratings are AAA's highest designations for hotels and restaurants.

Hotels rated Four- or Five-Diamond are "stylish and refined with upscale physical attributes", according to AAA. Guests, the agency says, receive personalized attention from an experienced staff and extensive amenities in a luxurious setting.

Restaurants at the Four- or Five-Diamond level offer a "distinctive fine dining experience. Creative chefs, imaginative menus, fresh top-quality ingredients and knowledgeable staff distinguish these establishments."

Establishments at the Four- and Five-Diamond rating levels make up just 3.9 percent and 0.3 percent, respectively, of the 59,000 AAA/CAA Approved hotels and restaurants.
